From The Public Domain Movie Database:
Betty operates a pet store where Henry wishes to purchase a puppy. Betty believes that everybody should have a pet and Henry agrees and works in the shop in hopes of getting a puppy. He gets into trouble with a monkey, dances with a dog, and accidently releases some birds. Betty is irate but rewards Henry with a puppy after he captures all of the birds.

This piece combines two comic styles: the pantomime of Henry, a well-known newsprint character who was depicted in the funny papers with no mouth, a sort of India ink Harpo Marx; and the well-known vaudeville-flavored vocal stylings of Betty Boop. Only the Fleischers could pull something like this off, certainly Disney couldn't have in those days.
